Tanks Arts Centre
Tanks Arts Centre is situated in the Cairns Botanic Gardens precinct, just 4km north of the city’s CBD, the centre is an iconic and innovative multi-use, contemporary arts facility housed in three converted World War 2 naval oil storage tanks, and set amidst a lush rainforest backdrop.
Tanks combine two main functions, that of a ‘presenter’ organisation offering a range of arts and cultural events and activities to a wide audience, and a community cultural development organisation which aims to proactively engage local communities in cultural expression and participation.
Munro Martin Parklands (MMP)
